Ganga SC shock Dynamo 1-0

GSA soccer

Guwahati, Aug. 27: Ganga Sports Club edged past Dynamo Club by a solitary goal in their match of the R.G. Baruah Guwahati Sports Association Super Division Football League at Nehru Stadium here today.

In a lacklustre affair, Ganga Sports Club’s penalty in the additional minutes of the first half went on to make the difference. Dynamo were down to 10 men with their Nigerian recruit Laisi Adyemi Wahab being shown the red card in the 53rd minute for two bookings in the match.

The all-important moment came in the additional minutes of the first half, with Ganga’s Nigerian recruit John Ozoenene Nwoke being deliberately fouled by Basta Marandi inside the danger zone. David Hmingthanga, who stepped up to take the penalty, made no mistake in finding the back of the net. With the referee whistling for the start of the second half, both the teams looked to be in their old rhythm although a 10-man Dynamo side managed to not concede another goal. Defender Wahab was shown the red card for a foul against John Ozoenene Nwok in the 53rd minute.

Substitute Thanil Singh, with a powerful strike from the right flank, decided to go for the target. However Basta did well to keep the ball in his hands in the 55th minute. Ganga forward Elkana Rosangzela’s powerless strike from a favourable position inside the box went wide off target in the 61st minute.

In the Jibeswar Goswami GSA A Division Football League, City Police were awarded a walkover after opponents Kamrupa Football Club failed to turn up.
